Work function change measurements combined with temperature programmed desorption
TPD were employed to study layer growth mechanism and the CH3Cl dipole­dipole interactions
on Ru 001 , over the temperature range of 97 K­230 K. The activation energy for desorption (Ea)
and the molecular dipole moment both decrease from 55.9 kJ/mol and 2.44 D, at the zero
coverage limit, to 38.6 kJ/mol and 1.27 D, at one monolayer. This coverage dependence originates
from strong dipolar lateral repulsion among neighbor CH3Cl molecules. Using a model introduced
by Maschhoff and Cowin MC J. Chem. Phys. 101, 8138 1994 , the isolated adsorbed molecule's
dipole moment, 0 2.35 D and polarizability (8.1 10 24
cm3
), were extracted from TPD data.
These values agree very well with 0 2.12 D and (9.2 10 24
cm3
) obtained from work function
